This week's NEWS

You can get anything you want at Alice's Restaurant... or if you start a man-in-the-street blog on fluoridation. And yes, Dorothy... you are in Kansas! Good neighbor policy still applies in Iowa. The new anti-bottled water mantra: "It's not what you drink... it's what you drink it in!"

Water Treatment Residuals: From Troublesome Sludge to Desirable Commodity

 Malcolm Pirnie offers specialty services to assist utilities in managing water treatment residuals (WTRs). We can assist utilities with recycle audits, Filter Backwash Recycle Rule (FBRR) compliance, arsenic residuals management, selection of innovative dewatering methods, and optimization of existing WTR facilities. Most importantly, we can help utilities determine the unique chemical and physical characteristics of their WTR, evaluate and recommend options, and establish a viable beneficial use program.

For more information on these services, please contact Jim DeWolfe at jdewolfe@pirnie.com or visit mcguireinc.com/wtr.
